    Hi,

    I have a pc that is not connected, is there any way to activate it offline, or perhaps online activation but so that it never asks again ?

    It seems the MS toolkit is no longer used and other alternatives do not mention offline option or I am missing it...
    There's a script flying around to activate all offices without a

    Thank you for the help.

    Aren't KMS (emulation) activations actually offline activations:thinking:

    Hi there, yeah could be? I thought though that it only lasts for 180 days, that KMS needs to phone home once every half year or so?

    I admit, I have not been in this game for a while so that could have changed long ago, in which case my apologies :)


    Also seems my first post has been cut short...so forget that last half-sentence please.

    With autorenewal it will be kind of perpetual.

    Ah, there you go. As it seems, OfficeRtool would be perfect...already reading up a bit.
    Thank you mate.

    Well I used OfficeRTool and it worked flawlessly to convert my office install into VL and install and activate it.
    But as I suspected, the counter is just set to 180 days, and there is no option in the tool to set the autorenewal...

    Can anyone point me in the right direction for a way to set this? Otherwise I'd have to connect the pc to a network once every 6 months...

    Thanks!

    Ok, found it already. It seems KMS_VL_ALL will do the trick.


    Thanks!

    This all worked out fine.

    So admin or mod: you may put a zipper on this one.
